General Meeting

May 3, 2023 General Meeting

At our May 3rd, 2023 general meeting, Vice-President Carmen Arnone used a fish puzzle she had assembled as an analogy for guild membership. Just as all puzzle pieces fit together to complete the whole puzzle, each guild member matters in the successful operation of the guild. No piece is more or less important than any other and each member can determine where they fit in to help make the guild a success. Missing pieces result in an incomplete puzzle. All members matter and when they identify where they fit,  the whole guild benefits.

In order to “find their fit”, members at each table had an opportunity to review a chart listing a thumbnail sketch of the various duties of programs. If a particular description drew their attention they were asked to jot down their name so they could fit together with other like minded members to generate ideas along with the Program Chair for the benefit of the whole guild. For those not at the meeting, please contact Carmen for a volunteer spot.

Two groups of members displayed their round robin quilts as part of creative quilt works.  Each member of the group had to use the fabric given and complete one border for the quilt.

Another creative quilt works project shown were patriotic themed articles.  The winners each received a ribbon.

During show and tell, members showed many quilts.  To see those quilts, go to the gallery portion of the website (click here).
